Korea & Ghana Gov't Support Rice Farmers In Assin North With Agric Equipment To Increase Production

The government of Ghana in collaboration with the Korea International Corporation Agency (KOICA) has supported Rice Farmers in the Assin North District of the Central Region with farm equipment to enhance rice production.

The machinery handed over to the farmers includes reaper binder, combined harvesters, rice threshers, power tillers and accessories, rice winnowers, and water pumps to enhance irrigation on the farms.

The District Chief Executive Officer of the Assin North District, Hon. Charles Ohene Andoh speaking at a small but colorful function at Assin Breku he noted that, five districts of the Central Region namely; Gomoa East, Assin Fosu, Assin North, Assin South, and Twifo Att-Mokwa were currently benefitting from the project.

According to him, it is expected that the equipment and the machinery will ease the laborious work involved in rice farming for the farmers in the five beneficiary districts as the gesture affirms the government's commitment to improving the rice value chain in the area.

Meanwhile, the beneficiary farmers speaking with Rich Fm and Angel FM/TV Reporter, Kwame Owusu Asante Shadrack they expressed their joy over the gesture as they would now move from where they used their hands for planting and harvesting to a mechanised form of farming with machinery and equipment.

Also, the Assin North District Agric Director, Mr. Joseph Kwabena Haizel advised the youth in the area to get themselves into the farming business since it has become lucrative.
